LAKE COUNTY SHERIFF CYBER CRIMES DETECTIVES ARREST MASCOTTE MAN ON MOLESTATION AND CHILD PORN CHARGES

Detectives with the Lake County sheriff’s Cyber Crimes Unit arrested 57-year-old Richard Alton Morgan of 59 Lake Jackson Drive in Mascotte yesterday after receiving a tip that child pornography was being shared from his residence.

Detectives arrived early Monday morning and served a search warrant at his home, at which time numerous images of child pornography were discovered and collected. Morgan admitted to downloading child pornography for years.

As detectives continued to review the evidence collected during the search, images were found of a young female who was being molested by Morgan. Detectives learned that this child, whom he admitted to molesting, is now in California. Late last night, California authorities located the child and arrested her mother on molestation charges also. It is believed that the mother and Morgan met online.

Morgan is in the Lake County Detention Center, charged with Possession of Child Pornography, Production of Child Pornography, and Lewd or Lascivious Molestation. He has no bond.

The investigation is ongoing as detectives have at least two more victims they are working to identify who possibly range in age from 10 to 15 months old (at the time the images were made). They are concerned that there may be even more victims. Detectives would be interested to hear from any parents of children who have spent time with Morgan.

Every day crimes are committed in Tavares, Mt. Dora, Leesburg and other areas of Lake County. On average 25 people are booked into the county jail each day. Are your friends, loved ones or dating prospects among them? Be proactive and stay up-to-date on what is going on in your community.
